cargo-partner celebrates 15th anniversary

International logistics provider, cargo-partner, is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its regional head office in Hong Kong.

On 17 February, cargo-partner hosted a celebration for employees to honour the 15th anniversary of the company’s regional hub for Asia-Pacific in Hong Kong.

cargo-partner CEO, Luca Ferrara, expressed his appreciation to the teams in Asia.

“We’ve achieved a lot together in the last 15 years,” he said.

“In particular, the past three years have been the most turbulent period the global logistics industry has ever seen.

“Our team across Asia-Pacific has mastered this time exceptionally well, reacting quickly and flexibly to each new challenge and proving our resilience and passion for innovation.”

The local team took this opportunity to look back on the successes achieved during the last 15 years.

In 2006, the company added an office in Hong Kong under the company name ‘c.p.’, which was officially changed to ‘cargo-partner’ in 2008 when the branch became the regional head office for cargo-partner’s growing presence in Asia-Pacific.

The team has since grown from 10 staff members to 130 employees, while recording a steady increase in transport requests and shipment volumes.

In 2022 the Hong Kong organisation handled over 52,000 transport requests, with the largest volume increase in air freight, amounting to 42.900 tonnes in the last year.

The demand for warehousing services has also grown, evidenced by an increase of 52.5 per cent in logistics turnover between 2021 and 2022.

In addition, the year 2023 also marks cargo-partner’s 40th anniversary since it was founded at Vienna Airport, Austria in 1983.

Since its establishment the logistics provider has completed its regional network with additional branches in India, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Australia.

Today, cargo-partner is represented at over 40 offices with more than 1,000 employees across Asia, representing a quarter of the company’s global staff base.

In addition to Hong Kong, the cargo-partner branches in Thailand and Singapore are also celebrating their 15th anniversaries this year.
